Weekend fun part 20; Vanilla Ice says...

"I'm sorry.
Even though Ice Ice Baby
sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

"I'm sorry
for the hairdos,
the baggy pants,
the scandals and I'm sorry about the music.
I was young, manipulated and I was a puppet."



Fallen rap star VANILLA ICE
has sensationally apologised for
his hugely successful hit ICE ICE BABY
- insisting he was a music industry "puppet"
at the time the single was released.

The former hip-hop star,
real name Robert Van Winkle,
topped the U.S. Billboard chart in 1990
- making the song the first rap track
to land the number one spot in the Hot 100 chart.

The hit rocketed the star into overnight superstardom,
but his success was short-lived,
and he faced a series of legal problems
due to sampling Queen & David Bowie's
Under Pressure on the track without permission.

Vanilla Ice also came under scrutiny due
to his erroneous claims about his background,
in which he falsely stated he grew up
as a gang member in the ghetto and
went to a predominantly-black high school.

And now the star,
who last released an album in 2006
and has made a string of reality show appearances,
admits he is ashamed of the song which made him famous.

He says in a video posted on YouTube,
"I'm sorry. Even though Ice Ice Baby
sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

"I'm sorry
for the hairdos,
the baggy pants,
the scandals and I'm sorry about the music.
I was young, manipulated and I was a puppet."

Ice, Ice Baby was recently voted as
the second worst song in history
by editors of Spinner.com and AOL Radio.
